Never heard of that name. So I asked my Old Testament Hebrew dictionary.

CHOL ist the Hebrew word for "sand", but that doesn't seem to make much sense.

There is a verb CHUL that means "to dance" (Judges 21.21).

There is another verb CHIL (the vowels I and U are often interchangeable), meaning "to be strong, succeed."

There is a Yiddish verb CHULJEN, "to romp."
